In Bangladesh, I had a dark brown bird

In Bangladesh

I had a dark brown bird


I took care of my bird

Giving her food

When I saw my bird was hungry

And cleaning the cage

Bathing Myna

I said, “Hello.”

Myna said, “Hello” back

Coo-Coo, Coo-coo, Coo-coo

She was talking to someone

When she saw the neighbor through the window

Coo-coo, Coo-coo, Coo-coo

One day I went to Dhaka

Myna was staying

Alone, without me

In her cage with an open door

There was a dangerous black cat

Next door to my house

The cat came in

and the cat ate my bird


When I came home

My uncle told me that

The cat ate my bird

Then I was crying

I loved my Myna.

Now there is only silence.

When I came to USA

I cried a lot because

I missed my country

I missed my friends

Like a cat ate my bird

Now there is only silence.
